~ღ~ Beloved Grandfather ~ღ~

Having been raised on his dad's farm, he wanted nothing to do with livestock and agriculture. After marriage on December 1, 1917, and a year following the birth of their daughter in Oct 1918, the little family of three moved from Barren County, Ky, where all were born, to Louisville. There Granddaddy began a new job and a new life for all. He was employed by L&N Railroad as a boilermaker, and worked several years past retirement age. He was Deacon Emeritus at Victory Memorial Baptist Church, Louisville, where they were members for many years, and where their daughter and grandchildren were raised. Showing love for his family as a whole and individually came easily for him. It was tangible. He was son of Harrison Novel "Nove" Smith, and Arabelle Letitia "Belle" Martin Smith, and was raised in Cave City, Barren County, Ky. Buford and Mallie had only one child, daughter Louise.

Our lives go on without you but nothing is the same. We have tried to hide our heartaches when someone speaks your name. Sad are the hearts that loved you. Silent the tears that fall. Living our lives without you is the hardest part of all. You did so many things for us, your heart was kind and true, and when we needed someone we could always count on you. The special years will not return when we were all together, but with the love within our hearts you will walk with us forever.
